Host & MC

The amount of work and cost involved in producing a major event like a convention, an awards ceremony or even a corporate Christmas party truly demands a professional "front person" to tie it all together. With several hundred events on her resume, Dawn's ability to command audience attention and keep the event on track has put her in high demand for her services as both an Emcee and Celebrity Auctioneer.

Workshop | Digital & Social Media Storytelling

If your brand or business has a YouTube channel, website, or social platform that uses video to share information, we can help in production. Video is a powerful tool that can inspire customers to support your brand; be it a kitchen tour of a new restaurant, your bartender’s newest cocktail creation, or a “how to video” to encourage traffic to a blog. There is no such thing as amateur video if you want to be viewed as a professional.

Workshop | Media Training & On-Camera Coaching

All sessions begin with a discussion about media, how it works and what makes a successful segment. Clients receive tips designed to help best present to the public, and are provided with an inside perspective of what producers need so you can secure a booking. Participants are interviewed by Dawn Chubai on video, followed by an immediate review and constructive critique before repeating as necessary. Participants are coached to confidently handle questions while staying on track, especially in a product demonstration situation, so key messaging is delivered in an organic way.
